    So...the map im working on involves going up quite frequently, and im getting kinda tired of stairs. So...I need some new methods and how to do them.
    The 1st thing I want to do is have something that acts like a jet of air and launches the person straight into the air. I tried trigger push but failed at that.
    The 2nd thing I want is to make a rising platform that starts on the down position and rises either on a button push or when someone steps on it.

    but yeah...I have absolutely no idea to do either

    Try trigger_push again, that's what people use to get effects similar to what you're describing. Check the trigger_push's flags and make sure that "applies to clients" is checked. The trigger should be at least as tall as the height you want the player to be launched. Players will not launch in the air unless they jump on the trigger. You can use a point_clientcommand to make a player send the "+jump" command OnStartTouch.

    There are several ways to do this, see this tutorial.

    What I did is use "Only once" flag and then made it respawn (with an entity maker).

    also make sure your push speed is large enough. for front/back/side push 500 can push you pretty well... but to push upward you need 1500 for a slow push upward, and maybe like 3000 for a launch
